Our lives have been deeply disrupted by the digital heartbeat of the 21st century.
Nonetheless in a world where technology seems to be ruling, it is our duty to tame this information society and its raw data.
Shall we smartly redefine the role of the consumer-citizen and reinvent his relationship with brands?
Why don’t we act like Montaigne or Erasme during the festival: rethinking the era so that data can serve citizens and lead to progress?
It’s time to dare digital humanism and avoid the pitfalls of technological determinism…

The Smart Renaissance has now begun!
